Wednesday before Turkey day

Kinda lame today. I went to Snider, even though we didn't have Young Life tonight. I am constantly out of the loop...because I am horrible at remembering all things BIG and small. Work was kind of depressing because I was told to go home early....even though the site director and I already discussed the hours I would be leaving early. Now the people in charge of time decisions are saying NO!! LESS & LESS HOURS!!!! I am thinking, "any less hours and it won't be worth me coming in." I called my dad and we decided it is time to start looking for another job. This is very very sad because I love my job. I am starting to make real and sweet relationships with the kids, and YMCA childcare are being very unwise. They are going to loose good workers who care about those kids (ME!) and replace them with people who just need a job. They told us in training about how important consistancy is with the kids, and now they are cutting hours left & right when we have more than enough kids at our site to pay for our workers....... Very frustrating, and FRUSTRATING!! The part that is the most frustrating is the fact that I am going to have to look for a new job. God will take care of it, he always has, and I trust that. It just makes me feel very unappreciated. I put in crazy hours for those kids for very little pay, and they want to cut my hours??? What the heck. I am sorry, but it is just very frustrating.

that has to be very frustrating about the less hours at your job. They did that to me last year and I almost quit because it wasn't even worth it coming it. Hopefully that dosen't happen to you. Nice picture! :)

Join the crowd..Nobody is appreciated at their jobs. You only hear about what you do wrong, never about all the good you do. Just show up for the paycheck and screw the caring part

I'm not capable of not caring, it's not in my blood. I work with kids, I don't push early hours and go above and beyond what I am asked for a simple check. I care about these kids, I have started relationships with them. It's no good. No good at all.
